Photos/Video: ARC Sailboats Leave St George’s

May 20, 2015

[Updated with video] After spending a few days enjoying Bermuda’s hospitality, yachts sailing under the flags of 20 different nations left Bermuda today [May 20] to make the 1800 nautical mile journey to Horta in the Azores.

The group set sail from Tortola in the British Virgin Islands on May 9th as part of the ARC Europe and ARC USA Spring Rallies, with more than forty boats sailing with ARC Europe this year; thirty leaving from Tortola and six from Virginia, USA for the first stage of the rally, which was a passage to Bermuda where a further seven yachts joined in.

  1. Bon Voyage’. Please return sometime; it has always been a pleasure viewing so many beautiful vessels in St. Georges Harbour at one time

    • I’ve just viewed the four plus moments video of the departure from St. George’s Harbour and I too had been (literally) “blown away!” Thanks Bernews for such great memorable footage :-)
